Light, magic and joy. That is, in essence, the Tacita de Plata, one of the oldest cities in the West. An intricate city of narrow streets open to the Atlantic ocean, where Baroque palaces and Indian buildings coexist in harmony with the exceptional modern architecture of the Parador. From the Tavira Tower, with its pioneering camera obscura, you will be able to see the city in all its splendour, including the cathedral, one of the best examples of the colonial glory of the city. The urban beach of La Caleta is its open and infinite horizon. Guarded by the castles of Santa Catalina and San Sebastián, its seafront promenade will remind you of the iconic Malecón in Havana. This welcoming city invites you to wander through its charming neighbourhoods and be seduced by its singular way of life. Don’t forget to write down the date of the carnival, the biggest festival of the region, in which the streets fill with comparsas, chirigotas (songs) and madness. You will also have the chance to have tapas and enjoy exquisite delicacies such as seafood, fried fish and the exclusive almadraba tuna fish. You can cross the Bay of Cádiz in a wonderful boat ride to discover El Puerto de Santa María or visit Sanlúcar de Barrameda, located in the mouth of the Guadalquivir river opposite Doñana, where you can taste some good manzanilla wine and experience the famous horse races on the beach during the summer.
